Strange e-mail about foreigner-pedophile

A few weeks ago, I went to the Bureau of Immigration in Cagayan de Oro City to renew my annual alien registration. I was told that there is a new procedure in place for the renewal of registration. I got a form to be filled out; it asked for several data on the members of my family.

BI wasn’t on ‘daang matuwid’ during David’s time

I go along with Monica Andaya’s wish for new Bureau of Immigration (BI) head to stay on “daang matuwid” (Letters, 8/17/13). However, in the spirit of fair play, I would like to express a contrary opinion to her suggestion that BI was on “daang matuwid” during the time of Commissioner Ricardo David Jr.

BI head ‘wished’ to stay on ‘daang matuwid’

The reputation of the Bureau of Immigration (BI), the gatekeeper of the nation, has, since its foundation, been tarnished by anomalous acts and controversies. But thanks to the present administration of President Aquino, the bureau has introduced remarkable reforms to slowly rebuild and reconstruct its image and honor.

BI’s unreasonable demands

There are a few countries to which Filipinos are privileged to go without need of a visa. The only things these countries require are a valid passport and a return ticket. Of course, the tourist has to bring enough cash for his needs, something that he determines for himself as he knows how he wants to spend his vacation—whether to go into a shopping spree or keep his spending to a minimum.

BI officers in Reyes brods’ flight dismissed

May we take exception to the Inquirer’s May 4 editorial titled “Big-shot fugitives” which partly commented on the case of the Reyes brothers who are suspects in the killing of broadcaster Gerry Ortega.

Inquirer news item raises hope for ex-BI employee

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) was the government agency I referred to in my letter titled “Hiring and promotion abuses in government” (Inquirer, 6/20/12). “Immigration chief faces graft raps” (Inquirer, 1/28/13) was therefore no surprise to me. I am a victim of grave abuse of discretion by the same chief and those around him. Many [...]

Alien’s identity needs verification

This is in response to the column titled “Adding insult to injury” of Ramon Tulfo (Inquirer, 11/8/12). The article refers to the complaint filed in the Bureau of Immigration by former Trade Undersecretary Maria Teresa Cruz-Evangelista against a certain Muhammad Ali Nasser al Shehri, purportedly an employee of the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Manila.

Call for replacement of BI chief

THE NEWS report titled “BI chief accused of favoring alien” (Inquirer, 9/10/12) is still fresh in my mind. It upset me so I made some inquiries. When news came out that President Aquino scolded the Bureau of Immigration officials and employees during their anniversary, I could only say to myself, “Serves them right.”

The stolen stage

The art of the theater is symbolized by two masks—one smiling, standing for comedy, and the other crying, standing for tragedy. Of late, Filipino performers may be seeing more of the tragedy mask, as foreign productions flourish on these shores and local productions languish.
